Santiago Cheer

In Santiago Cheer students learn all the fundamentals of cheerleading: cheers, motions, dance, jumps, kicks, voice projection, and the basic stunts. Girls/boys showcase their skills at games, assemblies, and other events in Orange. Students meet Mondays, Wednesday and Thursday in the cafeteria after school. See Ms. Grishaber with questions regarding the cheer information and schedule.
